In easy walking distance of top sights such as the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar, this traditional neoclassical-style hotel is a perfect base for first-time visitors to the city.

The super friendly service – totally geared to helping you get around and enjoy the best of the city – is a huge plus, and when you’re finished pounding the pavements, the hotel’s Sultan Spa, with an indoor swimming pool and traditional Turkish hammam, are just the ticket.

The comfortable prices, exceptional buffet breakfast and celebrated rooftop Olive restaurant (with lovely views over Old Istanbul) make this hotel a guaranteed winner for both couples and families.
